Pumpkin Cake III
This cake was so moist and absolutely decadent! I'm in loveee! I usually am never really good at baking cakes from scratch, but this, my God, this was amazingg! I took the advice of the other reviewers and cut down on the oil. I used 3/4 cup of oil and 1/2 cup of apple sauce. I also generally don't like frosted cakes, so I made a sheet cake and when it cooled, I cut it into 2 thin layers and spread the suggested cream cheese frosting between the two layers, so it's now a layer cake! It's almost done and I only made it about 15 hours ago! I'm usually happy about my food when people enjoy them and not just me, so I'm super happy this time! :D I added nutmeg as well and a bit more cinnamon. I also didn't use the vanilla essence, but rather a mixed essence that my mom has been using since I was a child. I got mine at a West Indian store in Queens, NY. I'm definitely going to be trying this again and I'll be sharing it with people; no more tough, dry cakes from me! lol :D MY TWEAKS -Fresh butternut squash steamed and pureed instead of canned -3/4 cup oil and 1/2 cup apple sauce instead of 1 1/4 oil -Mixed west Indian essence instead of vanilla essence -1/4 tsp nutmeg added to the flour mixture -Baked for 45 mins in metal sheet cake pan, on second rack at 350F - No nuts -Cream cheese frosting in center of cake instead of all over on top
